When it comes to understanding the very latest accessibility standards, there is no better tool than Significant Changes to the 2009 Accessibility Standard. This one-of-a-kind resource identifies significant changes in the 2009 edition of the ICC A117.1 standard and the accessibility items in the 2009 International Building Code®, and provides the reason and rationale behind those changes. Essential for an easy transition between code updates, the book's value lies in its focus, which is aimed at the most critical provisions, the most frequently used provisions, and provisions that have had a significant change in application, so that users can readily identify the need-to-know information. Each change is accompanied by a photograph, a real-world example, or an illustration, and is followed by a summary and analysis. Further enhancing this key content is the clear and deliberate labeling of each change as an addition, modification, clarification, or deletion. The end result is an indispensable resource that will familiarize building officials, plans examiners, inspectors, design professionals, and anyone in the building construction industry with the many important accessibility-related changes that have materialized in the 2009 and 2012 International Building Codes and the 2009 A117.1 standard.
